Telling Where People Come From

I've always had an interest in spoken languages. We boarded foreign students to help make ends meet once upon a very long time ago, so I got exposed to quite a few people whose first language was not English. I thought it was the most fascinating thing… more »

Light-Hearted Monkey Trial

I'm always interested in things that go on south (or, perish the thought, north) of the border here, to see what the latest shenanigans of creationism, or its smartly-dressed, smooth-talking brother, Intelligent Design. So, the goings-on in the case… more »

Bubble, Bubble, Build's In Trouble

Well, my coworker Robert actually went out and did it :) I came back to work after my wedding to see two lava lamps on top of the filing cabinet outside our office. more »

Katamari Damacy

A lot of people I know have encountered this before (to which I have to say, why didn't you tell me about it?), but our good friends Ennien and Robin showed this to us during one of our visits. They gave us a pre-wedding gift of a Playstation along… more »

Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit

My best man took me to see this movie on the day of the wedding. Ahhh, what a nerve-calmer :) It's pretty good, and the story line with its twist is nifty, but it doesn't get truly funny until quite late in the movie. I still much prefer Aardman's "A… more »

Wow, I am going to have a lot of updates to do here, especially to the wedding site, now that we've done the whole kitten kaboodle! The wedding went great! Some people told me in advance that things go much more quickly than you had imagined it… more »

A Week Left!

Great googly-moogly - there's a week and some handful of hours left until the wedding. Criminy! Lots of last-minute things to do, I'm sure, but we have covered off so many. We can't get away for an actual honeymoon, but we'll spoil ourselves for a… more »

Townhouse Gone!

Possession date has come and gone. September 30, all final transfers took place! Thank you to my sweetie and my future in-laws especially for all their hard work in evacuating the place, and to my realtor for getting it on market and giving some great… more »

Hacker, Hack Thyself

I'm sure this one has made the rounds before (it's from April), but I just love the [possibly apocryphal?] story and didn't encounter it until just today. It answers the question: what happens when a angry, blustering, amateur "hacker" who feels… more »

First E-mail Spoof "Attack"
